350 Mass Campaign Selection Meeting, Wednesday, March 1, 7:00 pm. All the Nodes and work groups have participated in a process of selecting campaign priorities for the organization. This week's meeting will select the campaigns for 2023-24. (Our last campaign, Bringing the Green New Deal Home, addressed housing retrofit legislation, protested dirty energy in our grid, and passed the Fair Share Amendment.) Current, new and prospective members are all invited to the Zoom meeting. For information and registration, see this Event page.
Rally for Clean Energy - "The Boston Fee Party". Thursday, March 2, 11:00 am. Location: Boardwalk next to Boston Children's Museum, 306 Congress St, Boston. Sponsored by Fix the Grid. Prices of electricity are skyrocketing this winter because our region depends too much on fracked gas for our power. The current system is unsustainable, harmful, polluting, and unnecessary. We know that cleaner alternatives exist. Call on Governor Healey to lead on reforming our electric system. Information and registration here.
National Day of Action to Discredit Bad Banks. Tuesday, March 21 (3.21.23): Activists nationwide are urging customers to move their money away from the "Big Bad Banks" that do most of the lending to fossil fuel corporations. Join 350 Mass' direct action wing Climate Courage for a noon visit to Chase Bank downtown, attack a giant credit card with a chainsaw to the music of a brass band, and inform the public about how banks are funding the climate crisis. Then, march to the nearby Bank of America. Sign up here. For more information and a list of other activities in Greater Boston on that day, see the national website.
Special Greater Franklin Node Meeting (Zoom), Thursday, March 30, 7:00 PM. Hold that date for a presentation and discussion led by Ingrid Geis, 350 Mass member and chair of our Stop and Steer the Money Working Group. The goal is to challenge and disrupt the financial underpinnings of the fossil fuel industry, notably from banks and insurance companies. We need to keep up the protests following the National Day of Action on 3.21.23. Ingrid will discuss how to identify which banks are "dirty" and which are not, what we can do as individual consumers, and examples of actions by groups of citizens.
